**calc limit**

lim (2^x - 3^-x)/2^x + 3^-x x-> infinity Thanks. Do you mean (2^x - 3^-x)/(2^x + 3^-x) or [(2^x - 3^-x)/2^x] + 3^-x ? in other words, is the second 3^-x in the denominator? In any case, the limit of 3^-x as x-> infnity is zero. That should help you figure out the answer...

**eigenvalues/eigenvectors**

The matrix; [ 1 -2 0] [-2 -1 1] [ 0 0 -1] I have found the eigenvalues to be -1 and +/- 5^1/2 but am having problems putting the root 5 values a eigenvectors. I know I sub it back into the matrix { x-1 -2 0 } { -2 x+1 1 } { 0 0 x+1} but then it gets messy. Can someone finish ...

**precalc sequence**

5-5^2 = 5-25 =-20 The fifth term is just when n=5 I believe. What is the fifth term of the sequence a sub n=5-n^2? a)-11 b)-20 c)-7 d)-5 I believe that the answer that fits the best is d, but I could be wrong

**discrete math**

If a and b are positive integers, prove that: ab = gcd(a,b)*lcm(a,b). Can visualize this being true and easily create examples just dont know how to prove algebraically. well the gcd of any two number can be found by multiplying the two numbers together and the lcm of all ...
